The death of someone close can be shattering.
Everyone experiences grief differently. There is no ‘normal’ or ‘right’ way to grieve. How we react will be influenced by many different things including our age, personality, cultural background and religious beliefs, our previous experiences of bereavement, our circumstances and how we cope with loss. Cruse Bereavement Care offers advice, information and support to bereaved people of all ages, however or whenever the death occurred.
Our mission is to offer support, advice and information to children, young people and adults when someone dies, and to enhance society’s care of bereaved people We aim to promote the well-being of anyone bereaved by death and to enable bereaved people to understand their grief and cope with their loss
- With volunteers working across the Tees Valley and Durham Area, we aim to offer a quality information and support service to any bereaved person, regardless of age, gender, class, culture, disability, ethnic origin or background
- We offer bereavement support to children and young people either through one-to-one sessions with specialist child bereavement volunteers or via the national website for young people, designed by young people www.hopeagain.org.uk
- We also offer support to the Military Family. We understand that people who have lost a loved one while they are serving in the Armed Forces may have particular issues that complicate the grieving process.
- We have highly trained volunteers who can support the bereaved after a sudden and traumatic death: suicide, homicide, road traffic accident.
